The Powerfest from partypoker is back for the second time this year, and this time it is bigger than ever with $10 million guaranteed over three weeks.
The online festival, which was last seen back in May, boasts 198 events at a variety of buy-in levels, that range between $5.50 to $5,200.
Like previous Powerfests, the series is structured according to the Power Series weight levels: Featherweight, Middleweight, Heavyweight and High Roller.
Each weighting will have its own Main Event, but on September 25 there is a one off $1 million guaranteed Super High Roller that has a buy-in of $5,200 for those looking to win big.
The Featherweight and Middleweight events will run consecutively for the first two weeks, with the Heavyweight and High Roller taking center stage in the final week.
|Dates||Weight||Buy-ins||Main Event||Combined guarantees|
|September 4-11||Featherweight||$5.50-$11||$11 buy-in $40,000 guaranteed on September 11||$355,000|
|Middleweight||$22-$55||$55 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed on September 11||$750,000|
|September 11-25||Heavyweight||$109-$215||$215 buy-in $500,000 guaranteed on September 25||$4,040,000|

Many exciting new additions have been added into the Festival to make it appealing to a board range of players. Here we take a closer look.
Designed specifically for microstakes players to win a place in the Powerfest, Powerfest Mini will run between September 1 – 4.
The Powerfest Mini will consist of 12 events that will have buy-ins of $2.20 or less but with guarantees of over $40,000. In addition, there will also be a 4-day leaderboard with $20,000 worth of Powerfest tickets up for grabs.
Power Plus leaderboard
Play cash games from August 28 – September 10 to climb the three Power Plus leaderboards that have been designed to match the weighting scales.
The top 100 finishers on each leaderboard get instant cash prizes, plus players will earn additional cash prizes if they also cash in a Powerfest event in the same weight class. For example, if you finish first on the Heavyweight leaderboard, you’ll get $600 instantly then a Power Plus cash prize of $3,000 just for min-cashing in any Heavyweight POWERFEST event!
Featherweight and Middleweight leaderboards run concurrently from August 28 – September 3 and the Heavyweight leaderboard runs from September 4 – 10.
This structure means players will know their leaderboard standing before entering the Powerfest.
New to this Powerfest Series will be the chance for players to do it all through their mobile phones—as partypoker has just launched a multi-tabling app that will allow players to play on four tables at once.
The app is available for both android and iOS users and includes a unique new mini table view with quick fold functionality and a new customizable bet slider.
